The m-CAN OBD is a digital adaptor for the hassle-free direct connection of our instruments to the diagnostic interface of post-2004* Harley-Davidson™ machines.
Plug & Drive - it doesn't get easier!
A tiny black box frees you of the necessity to install speed or RPM sensors. Every Harley-Davidson™ machine later than 2004* is equipped with this 3-pin connector interface. With the m-CAN OBD digital adaptor simply plugged into the interface, your motogadget instruments can read data straight from the SAE J1850 machines data bus: Speed, RPM and MIL (check engine warning light). Voltage supply over the OBD data bus is also optional, making possible the operation of e. g. the motoscope mini without any installation procedures to the bike.
The instrument is simply connected to the m-CAN OBD. All compatibility issues between instruments and original speed sensors - especially w/ H-D models since 2007 - are solved. Also, the signal for the MIL/malfunction warning is read at the engine as well as peripherally and can be read by installing a LED/indicator light. This means that all original instruments are redundant and may be removed**. The m-CAN OBD consists of only a tiny, completely moulded-in box, an ODB-connector and a sufficiently long connector cable. It is resistant against vibrations and environmental exposure. It's serviceability is ensured even with less than 5V system voltage and meets all SAE-specifications for motorcycles.
** With certain models like the V-ROD, removing the original speedometer may lead to problems with the ECU/immobiliser. Please inquire about this at your trusted dealer or test before actually performing the modification (e. g. by disconnecting the original speedometer). In some cases, the immobiliser has to be deactivated.
* The application is not possible with H-D Softtails model year 2011, Dyna model year 2012, XL model year 2014 and up. Also not possible with all other models with HD-LAN system. Fits only models with SAE J1850 system.
